(in Japanese, open access).
Three modes of fiber fuse propagation are defined for SMF and NZ-DSF on the basis of pump power dependence of its propagation speed and damage structure. In cylindrical mode and unimodal mode, enclosed plasma occupies fully in the radial direction and leaves a void train with and without periodicity, respectively. In unstable mode, the cross-sectional area of the plasma is smaller than that in other two modes and vulnerable to the irregularity of the waveguide structure. Threshold power for fuse propagation should be carefully determined without accidental termination due to this vulnerability.

Enjoy with the brief English captions in it. This was originally made for a public relations video for an open campus day at the National Institute for Materials Science, Japan.
